Square Enix is reportedly working on a new PS5 exclusive Final Fantasy game which may be announced at E3.
This news comes via insider ‘Navtra’, who has notably given out reliable information on Square Enix projects. As spotted by VGC, Navtra revealed this information as a comment on a ResetEra thread discussing Final Fantasy 16.
“I believe you can expect at least one more major FF announcement in addition to updates on the currently announced stuff (XVI/Endwalker/VIIR),” they said, in reply to a commenter who speculated about a franchise announcement at E3. “It should be a good E3 season for Square overall.”
“I don’t know their exact E3 schedule, but I’m guessing based on knowledge of what games they have in development, how far in they are, and their target release dates. So take it with a grain of salt,” added Navtra. “I believe we’re getting two major SE reveals this June: A PS5 exclusive FF title, and a cross-gen Eidos title.”
Navtra has been a reliable source of Square Enix and industry insider news; they revealed a whole lot of information about the PS5 showcase that took place in June last year, as well as the Marvel’s Avengers PlayStation exclusive DLC. Additionally, they also revealed that Final Fantasy 16 would be a PS5 exclusive before the game’s reveal. With the E3 online showcase scheduled for next month, we won’t have to wait too long to see if Navtra’s information holds up.
Last week we reported that Final Fantasy 14 would officially begin PS5 support on May 25. The next-gen version of the game brings with it 4K support, faster load times, higher resolution UI, DualSense haptic feedback, new trophies, and the addition of 3D audio. The PS5 upgrades also brought some of those changes to PS4 Pro and PC.
Another announcement that came at the Final Fantasy 14 Digital Fan Fest was that Yoshinori Kitase would take over the role of Final Fantasy Brand Manager after the stepping down of Shinji Hashimoto. Kitase has been a long serving member of the Square Enix management and has worked on titles like Final Fantasy 6, 7, 8, and 10. He also directed Chrono Trigger, and co-produced Kingdom Hearts.
